TWO STOREYS PENTHOUSE IN MONZA

The client asked us to make a restyling and interior decoration project for a penthouse, part of an old farm-house, previously transformed in a residence.
The bulky irregular structural wood beams, the typical leaning roof and the wood floor gave a strongly traditional and “romantic” atmosphere to the house, far  from the male tastes of the client.
Our project followed a contemporary and metropolitan inspiration,  matching design pieces chosen from the market with furniture tailor-made designed, to create useful containers and to hide technologic elements in sight.
At lower floor, by the entrance, we designed a dark wood wardrobe and on the side of it a backlit mirror with a small drawer where put keys and sun glasses;  next to it there is a small living with four dark-brown leather Citè armchairs designed  by Jean Prouvé in 1930 and produced by Vitra.
Next  the warm grey painted wall in the background,  there is a very essential low Zanotta furniture and two white glass lamps “Atollo” designed by Vico Magistretti.
